Roch Rochester served a total of twenty-two years in the Royal Artillery/Royal Horse Artillery and injuries sustained in service, which included a broken neck and a spinal compression as well as the subsequent reconstruction of both his knees, led his medical discharge in 2002.
Since leaving the Armed Forces, Roch has recovered sufficiently to regain a modicum of mobility but continues to also deal with the psychological effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Roch received a specialised hand-bike, thanks to a welfare grant from the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund, to enable him to enjoy the great outdoors with his family was well as enjoy the benefits of exercise.
“I struggle to walk so the hand-bike lets me do ‘dad stuff’ with my daughters as I can’t ride a normal bike. These pictures were taken during a recent cycle with my daughter in Dartmoor. My sincere thanks to the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund.”
